This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Virginia Granbery was a painter of portraits and still life, also did animal subjects and landscape views including the White Mountains in New Hampshire.  She lived in Manhattan but with her artist sister, Henrietta Granbery (1829-1927) was a "significant figure in Brooklyn art life. . . .an extremely able still-life specialist." (Gerdts 142) Both women were art educators.   Virginia was best known for her fruit still life painting and her sister for florals.

Lithographer Louis A Prang of Boston reproduced more of Virginia's fruit paintings than the paintings of any other artist of that era.  Very few of her original works have been found.  

Granbery was born in Norfolk, Virginia, and studied at the Cooper Institute and the National Academy of Design.  She was a teacher at Packer Institute in Brooklyn, and was so popular, that after eleven years of teaching, she resigned from the exhaustion of working with so many students.  However, she continued with her painting.

Exhibition venues included the National Academy of Design, Pennsylvania Academy and the Brooklyn Art Association.
